So, I guess it wasn't until this evening, as I was sitting in my dorm room after my summer class, that I really started to realize that the semester was over. In many ways, I'm happy it is over. I'm tired of classes and I'm tired of work. I need a break. But there is no denying that I had some very good times as well. While some of them didn't end the way I wanted them to, it's not as though I'd rather they hadn't happened at all. So, overall I guess I'm sad and relieved that the year was over. It's time for summer sunshine and more time to do many of the things that I had been putting off all winter because of time constraints.
Regardless, it will be sad packing up the rest of my stuff tomorrow and shutting the book on another memory-filled year. But, life goes on and so will I with it. I've already got plans for the summer, for once, and I'm very happy with them so far.
Most years I don't like moving out, mostly because it means that I will need to move back in with my parents too. This year is no different, except that I'm not going to dwell on it. It is a negative, but so are many things in life. We cannot let them rule us. We need to look to the positives and not mope over the negatives. So, I've had a great time overall this year and I will have a great time this summer.
How do I know it?
